The Good Shepherd

 

All of us like sheep have gone astray. Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him." (Isaiah 53:6) Naturally, the sheep cannot find their way without the shepherd. But we, as sheep, think that we can live our lives apart from Christ. However, Jesus said "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." (John 14:6)

In this season of Passover, let us reflect on whether we have allowed Jesus to become our Great Shepherd. Let us also remember that Passover commemorates the glorious reality that Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice, offering Himself as a slain lamb and thus paving the way for us to gain eternal life. He redeemed us by shedding His precious blood on the cross for us. How then can we have eternal Life? We need to follow His Way which is the cross.

We need to look up to Him whom we have pierced with our disobedient life. "Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen." (Revelation 1:7) We will join Him on the cross, so that we can be led to the Father to obtain the Everlasting Life. "HAPPY EASTER!"
